Sculpture exhibited at University Art Museum, Cal State Long Beach, 2013
Held at a private home, the event gathered friends to use ceramic shakers, bells, and megaphones to punctuate a materialogue spoken to usher the objects into the fire as well as question the very idea of transformation. On earth the earth easily buries the earth. We: bringing to light and reverberations. You: are welcomed to listen, observe, and generate. Drinks from below-ground were served, by host Candice Lin.
